Quick Oil-Free Diet Snacks With Flattened Rice (Poha)

oats poha oil free snack
Oil free diet snacks are a favorite with me. You can munch on them whevever you wish to. 

A hot cup of tea always comes in as a great accompaniment.

I love tea and pair it with crunchy cookies. But sometimes I do love to munch on this healthy chiwda snack...

The best thing about this simple oil free diet snack is that it is quick to process. 

In fact, the diet snack recipe is all about:


  • gathering the ingredients
  • dry roasting them
  • tempering them with carom seeds and curry leaves to enjoy an aromatic snack that is high in fiber and calories 





This diet snack recipe is extremely simple and nutritious with a blend of healthy ingredients, viz. fiber-rich flattened rice and oats, nutritious peas and peanuts/almonds, and aromatic carrom seeds.


 Ingredients of diet snack



 1 cup Poha (rice flakes)
1/4th cup oats
little salt
corn flakes or mixture - 3 tbsp
Dry peas (optional)- 2 tbs
Roasted peanuts (I didn't use, as they raise bad cholesterol)
1/2-1 tsp of oil (I used olive oil)
1/2 tsp carom seeds (ajwain)
raisins and dry fruit of your choice




oats poha ratio
Process
Dry roast Poha (it will take some time..keep stirring, else poha will burn out easily), set aside. 
Dry roast groundnuts and any other dry fruit that you wish to use (no need to roast raisins). 
I roasted oats for a minute. But it breaks easily. So no need to roast oats.
Take oil in a separate pan, add carom seeds..let them splutter for a second, add salt, turmeric....add all the nuts and poha and oats...give it a good mix. 
Add any mixture that you may like. 
If you want, you may add chat masala as well at the end for that tangy taste!!

Homemade Edible Powders: Beetroot, Onion, Garlic, Ginger, Lemon, Orange, Sambar, Kurma, Garam Masala

The title says it all. This post is all about edible powders that can be used as flavoring agents, natural color, and to make food visually attractive. What more do we need? Though I am not too much in favor of drying food and storing the same, this is the best option for those days when these veggies are out of season. During the season, please make it a point to enjoy these fresh and flavorful. There's nothing better and healthier than fresh produce, right?

Okay so the idea to make these powders popped up in my mind as I had too many beetroots at home. When nobody was too eager to have them, the best way to still consume these beauties was to sundry them to powder. I did exactly that.





Then I wondered if I can sundry lemon peels into powder just like we do to orange peels. I have been using orange peels as a face pack thus far. But since the baking bug has bitten me badly, I plan to use it as an edible powder for cakes and cookies too. Fingers crossed for the results though, sin…

The Best Multigrain Digestives: An Airfryer Recipe

The best multigrain digestives? I know I have shared too many digestives recipes but this one is my best. To be frank, I experiment, relish, share, and post the same for you all and then forget all about it because it's time to experiment again with new ingredients. So today it was another kind of digestives - relished by one and all. My cookie making spree has turned my cookie hater hubby into someone who has started to munch on these baked beauties.



Before sharing the simple cookie recipe, it is time to go through oats benefits. You are already aware of my love for oats. One reason you rarely find my recipes without this fibrous cereal grain. Did you go through the fiber benefits?











Go to my fiber benefits post to get deeper insight into the need for including fiber in your diet.



Ingredients
1 cup- oat flour
3/4 cup- whole wheat
1/4 cup- bran
1/4cup- ragi
2 tbsp- roasted quinoa powdered (roasted quinoa adds a nutty flavor to the recipe - substitute with almond powder if you do not h…

Diabetic Diet Cake With Watermelon: A Vegan Recipe

While people are still debating whether watermelon is a diabetes-friendly fruit, I still stick to my notion that diabetics can have this fruit for its sheer hydration effect. Not only this, the fruit is loaded with minerals, nutrients, and antioxidants that make it a health-friendly food. However, diabetics with kidney issues should avoid watermelon. Anyway, let's come back to the watermelon cake recipe for diabetics. Well, this cake uses another fruit - banana- which even I do not think is diabetes-friendly. But I went ahead with including a banana for this recipe merely to keep the fat content low. I hope you all know that a banana is a good substitute for an egg for an eggless cake recipe.

Since an egg is also loaded with saturated fat, diabetics should avoid it at any cost. So I had to choose between an egg and a banana for this diabetes-friendly cake, and ended up voting for this humble fruit - which is one of my favorites too. Yes!

When you think of a vegan diabetes-friendl…
